Crispy Slow Cooker Carnitas

I made a slightly modified version of this recipe tonight and it was a hit.  So, I figured I would share and post it here so I don’t forget where I found it.

Do you watch/ listen to YouTube bloggers?  Well, I have found some I really like, but that list will be for a post in the future.

But, this recipe was published on YouTube on June 28, 2017 by ‘She’s in Her Apron’.  A friend of hers found it from ‘Gimme Some Oven’ and the direct link is below:

I actually had two cooked, plain, shredded chicken breasts in the fridge that I didn’t have a plan for.  So, I put the shredded meat in a saucepan and made the sauce with the addition of the juice from one Halo mandarins.  I then simmered it on medium-low for about 30 minutes.

After than I followed the actual recipe.  The husband commented on how good the house smelled when he came in the door and was more than happy to eat three tacos with this meat in them for dinner.

So, let me know if you try it and if you liked it.  This is definitely going in my list of Go To meals.

I am back!

Well, actually I have been here, gone and then back, but the last month has been crazy!

Part of the time I was on vacation and came up with a huge mental list of blog posts.  Now to get them written down, planned and actually posted.  I promise they will be posted, but it may take months to get them all done.

The west is currently in a heat wave.  I am so happy that I don’t live in Phoenix right now.  I will take the upper 90s, but Pepper, the Golden Retriever, is not enjoying it.  I need fill her kiddie pool and see if she will go in it tonight.

What is the weather like where you live?
